Just click on a painting from the "Purchase a Painting" tab under "Artwork" and it will take you to my PayPal site.  Here you will see the cost of the painting.  There will be no tax but there will be a shipping charge (based on Canadian Postal rates).  Shipping costs will depend on the  size, weight and destination.  Once I have received payment, the painting will be shipped as soon as possible.  I will send an email requesting shipping charges that can also be paid via Paypal.



Depending on the size of the painting and where it is going in Canada or the US, shipping can be made by either UPS Ground or Canadian Postal.  Insurance and Tracking will be included.  



For international destinations, please contact me for shipping rates.  The rates will be determined by weight and dimensions and the destination postal code.  You will be responsible for paying shipping, duties, taxes and any other fees determined by the country of destination.



If you are not satisfied with a painting when you receive it, I must receive notification  within five (5) days and the painting returned to me within seven (7) days from the date it was received. It must be in the original packing and shipped to me at your expense, with tracking and insurance included. I will issue a full refund of the purchase price within a week, as long as it is received back in the original condition.

Where to find my paintings...

Just across the driveway from my house at 4975 Arthurs Road on Hornby Island.   There is a pathway right off Arthurs Road that leads to the door and the Studio sign is above the door.  I will usually also have a  sign out near the road when I am open but if it isn't there, feel free to contact me for an appointment to come and visit.  Check out the map on the "Contact Me" menu option at the top of this page for my actual location on Hornby Island.
